How Well Do You Know God?
It's sad, but true, that many people go through life without really knowing God.
Yet God longs for you to know Him.
He can be more real to you.
Knowing God is tied in with being aware of His presence.
To become more aware, all you have to do is learn to listen to the Holy Spirit's promptings and use your spiritual senses.
Your spiritual senses grow as you use them.
There is a spiritual kingdom all around you waiting for you to recognise it.
The spiritual realm is just as real as the physical realm but most people aren't aware of it.
Their spiritual senses are dull from lack of use.
Most people know that the spiritual world exits but don't think it's real in the accepted sense of the word.
People are so earth bound that they find it hard to see the spiritual reality all around them.
Yet, belief in the invisible lies at the heart of your walk with God.
To have faith, is to be sure of the things you hope for and to be certain of the things you can't see.
People separate the physical and the spiritual in their thinking when really there isn't any separation.
To grow in God and the things of the Spirit you need to move your attention from the seen to the unseen.
It's time to become other-worldly.
If you really want to follow God you need to become more spiritually minded, even if that means being thought a bit strange.
"We must avoid the common fault of pushing the 'other world' into the future.Your spiritual eyes and ears are weak because you haven't used them much but it doesn't have to be that way.
It is not future, but present.
It parallels our familiar physical world, and the doors between the two worlds are open.
You can train yourself to use them.
If you're a Christian, you are in Christ and with the Holy Spirit's help you can have eyes to see and ears to hear.
As you begin to focus more on God, you will begin to see the things of the Spirit.
God is waiting for you to respond to His presence.
Are you ready to begin a closer walk with God? It's time to spend more time with God in the secret place.
Lord, give me eyes to see and ears to hear.
Enable me to see with your eyes.
Help me to be more aware of your presence.
Make yourself known to me.
Let me be one of those who are as at home in the spiritual realm as in the earthly realm.
Help me to live more and more in the power of Your Spirit.
I long to have continual fellowship with you.
Lead me Lord, show me how.
